What is SpotOn London?

SpotOn London is the annual, flagship SpotOn conference.

SpotOn brings together researchers, science communicators, technologists, and those interested in science policy to discuss science policy, outreach and tools in a single event.

This years’ event will  be themed: “What might peer review look like in 2030?” and will include keynotes, discussion sessions, workshops and fringe activities.

The hashtag will be #Spoton16.
